I was speaking to Amit about this, so on Ubuntu, uname -r right now
does not show the extraversion from upstream stable series. So for
example right now we're on, if I want to help users of ath9k
I want them to have at least as we have critical fixes that
went into that release. I can't easily find out what Ubuntu users are
on unless I know what the 2.6.27-foo means beforehand. Fedora seems to
keep it, for example on this report I was seeing

Would it be possible to add this for Jaunty?
